"Act of Love" as written by and Neil Young....
The fruit of love was in the future
Around the corner and over the hill
The act of love was slowly pounding
Slowly pounding
Slowly pounding

The holy war was slowly building
Heroes leaving for the great crusade
Seek reward in the ever after
Ever after
Ever after

Don't want to have to lose you baby
Don't want to have to take you back
You know I'll never lose you baby
Abuse you baby
Use you baby

You know I'll always help you baby
But I just can't do that
I know I said I'd help you baby
Here's my wallet
Call me sometime

Act of love
Act of love
Act of love
Act of love

The fruit of love was in the future
Around the corner and over the hill
The act of love was slowly pounding
Slowly pounding
Slowly pounding

Act of love
Act of love
Act of love
Act of love

    General CommentA song about the pro-life/pro-choice battle which was really at its apex in the mid-90's when the song was written. Sort of a cousin or brother to "Song X" and "I'm the Ocean", both of which cover approximately the same ground. This one looks at abortion and the "holy war" over it from a more humanistic perspective, whereas "Song X" seems to look at it politically and "I'm the Ocean" takes an abstract viewpoint.
